It was about the time for Nexus 7 to receive the first official ASUS accessory, now that is available on the market for several months. The first Nexus 7 accessory is the dock station pictured below, and also unboxed in the video at the bottom of the article.
This is the first time when the Nexus 7 dock hits the web, but I guess this is just the beginning of the accessories created for the 7-inch tablet, given the popularity of the device.
More official accessories like this one will be sold via Google Play Store, while rumor has it that the first Nexus 7 official dock will hit the market by the end of the year. The guy who made the Nexus 7 dock unboxing video claims that he managed to buy the accessory from a Japanese retailer earlier, therefore we might see it hitting the market soon.
Unfortunately, the dock only comes with a 3.5 mm audio jack, microUSB out for recharging and sync, but there’s no way of a HDMI port. Rumor has it that the Nexus 7 dock will have a price of $39.99 or below. My guess is that the Taiwan-based company and Google might prepare a Nexus 7 + dock station package as a Christmas special.
I remind you that Nexus 7 packs a 7-inch LED-backlit IPS LCD display, quad-core Tegra 3 chipset with ULP GeForce GPU, 1 GB of RAM, and 16 or 32 GB of internal storage. It also sports a 1.2 megapixel camera for video calls and a 4,325 mAh battery that provides a battery life of 10 hours of multimedia playback.
